DRC leaves Giants -- Sign him, Ted?

I wonder if we're getting near the point that Eli Manning ends his consecutive starting streak due to ineptitude.  He's got about 4 or 5 years before he could break Favre's record.  Quite frankly, Favre's record probably should have ended at some point during the 2005 season, but Mike Sherman had lost Favre and the team by that point, and basically let Favre do whatever he wanted that year even though in terms of performance Favre probably needed a bit of a benching. 

I don't know, I'm sure McAdoo has his issues but can you really fire a coach 6 games after being in the playoffs, and only 23 games into his tenure?  Maybe coaching is part of the problem but IMO, the GM has been the much bigger issue.  Other than OBJ, Collins and maybe Richburg, has this team drafted (and kept) an above average player in the last decade?  Just looked at their draft history and it is brutal going back to 2007.  Hankins, Joseph and Amukamra are good but they left after their rookie deals.  

Yes. The Giants recents drafts have been horrific. But they made the playoffs last year almost entirely based on the GM signing Olivier Vernon, Janoris Jenkins, Damon Harrison, and Keenan Robinson in free agency. The Giants offense has been bad going all the way back to the middle of last year. 

It appears Ben has completely lost the team. I could see the coach and GM being dismissed at the same time. And sooner rather than later.

Maybe he will be Ted's October surprise.


It seems that every year this trade talk comes up, and it's just not TT's MO. This year may be different, but then we still have MAdams and Biegal who haven't gotten into a game yet. Are they better than anyone out there TT could deal for or snatch off another practice squad? That's the question.

The Giants D finally succumbed to the crushing weight of the offenses inability to get anything done. It’s carried over to 2017. The Giants have averaged 18 points / game going back to October 2016. And a lot of those points are from the defense. 

Yeah, early in the game the dropped passes were taking points off the board, and with us taking the lead on the Hail Mary at the end of the half, the team suffered the same demoarlizing fate as we did when THEY hit the Hail Mary in an earlier playoff game.
